LLLJP Confidence Factor of SODAR Measurements

"A confidence factor (which ranges from 0 to 5) is determined for the sodar data from an aggregate of three criteria, which are based on the degree of consistency of the individual results from each of the 10 transmitted frequencies, the returned signal strength, and the level of consistency between vertical layers (range gates). Values of 3 or more are generally associated with reasonable estimates of the wind velocity."
